Bird heads up Malcolm Wilson rally entry

Paul Bird heads a quality 140 car entry for next Saturday’s Malcolm Wilson Rally. The Penrith man will leave the Cockermouth town centre start in his new Ford Focus WRC to head for seven competitive stages in the Lake District forests.

Behind Bird will be Chesterfield’s Steve Perez, also in a Focus. At car 3 is the popular Peugeot Cosworth which is crewed by current BTRDA championship leaders Andy Burton and Shelley Rogerson.

Graham Middleton and Ella Flynn start first in the 1400 category ahead in their Suzuki Ignis ahead of the Proton Satria of Darren Pinchin/Karen Watts.

The action gets underway from Cockermouth on 7th March at 8.30am and there are spectator car parks at all seven stages on the event. For more information on the event please visit
